Cindy Sherman

Published to accompany the first major survey of Cindy Sherman's work in the United States in nearly 15 years, this volume presents a stunning range of work from the groundbreaking artist's 35-year career.

Showcasing approximately 180 photographs from the mid-1970s to the present, including new works made for the exhibition and never before published, Cindy Sherman is a vivid exploration of Sherman's sustained investigation into the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation.

The book highlights major bodies of work including Sherman's seminal "Untitled Film Stills" (1977–80), "Centerfolds" (1981), "History Portraits" (1989–90), "Head Shots" (2000–2002), and two recent series on the experience and representation of aging in the context of contemporary obsessions with youth and status.

An essay by Eva Respini, Associate Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, provides an overview of Sherman's career, weaving together art historical analysis and discussions of the artist's working methods. A contribution by art historian Johanna Burton offers a critical re-examination of Sherman's work, while a conversation between the artist and filmmaker John Waters provides an enlightening view into the creative process.

Cindy Sherman (born 1954) is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Over the course of her career, she has sustained a provocative investigation into the nature of identity drawn from movies, television, magazines, the Internet, and art history. To create her photographs, she assumes multiple roles of photographer, model, makeup artist, hairdresser, and stylist. With an arsenal of wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props, Sherman has altered her physique and surroundings to create myriad tableaux — from screen siren to clown to aging socialite.
